Heather Brown Electronicals Launches the Sensation Fuzzdrive

Heather Brown Electronicals Launches the Sensation Fuzzdrive

A blend of fuzz and overdrive that attempts to combine punchiness and warmth, without sacrificing body or getting too “fizzy.”


Fuzz pedals provide great warmth, but obliterating the signal can get a little chaotic. The Sensation Fuzzdrive attempts to bring out the best of both by blending that punchiness and warmth, without sacrificing body or getting too “fizzy.” At its core, it’s a tool to push your signal hard without the chaos. It goes from a fuzzy low-end to crisp, overdriven mids, sure to make a screaming solo really jump out in a mix. The fuzz aspect provides just enough compression to smooth out the breakup.

Tone-shaping is achieved through three distinct transistor-based gain stages controlled by the “Saturator,” with an additional gain switch providing hi/low options. There are three tuned settings for mids-presence and another three for bass-presence. These functions expand your range and maximize precision.

Features

  • Up to 3 selectable gain stages
  • Additional gain bump option at each saturation level
  • Separate bass and mids switches
  • 9V DC. (Center Negative)

The Sensation Fuzzdrive sells for $249 and can be purchased from the Heather Brown Electronicals website at godsmom.com or via the company’s store on Reverb.com.

With a team of experts on hand, we look at six workhorse vintage amps you can still find for around $1,000 or less.

If you survey the gear that shows up on stages and studios for long enough, you’ll spot some patterns in the kinds of guitar amplification players are using. There’s the rotating cast of backline badasses that do the bulk of the work cranking it out every day and night—we’re all looking at you, ’65 Deluxe Reverb reissue.
